Frequently Asked Questions
GenoRisk Alzheimer’s Test
Anyone over the age of 18 who is interested learning their genetic risk for the most common type of Alzheimer’s Disease.
Anyone over the age of 18 who is interested in learning more about determining their genetic risk for late-onset Alzheimer’s Disease.
GenoRisk Alzheimer’s is not indicated for individuals who have already been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, although there may be benefit in having immediate family members take the GenoRisk Alzheimer’s test.
ADx Health’s GenoRisk Alzheimer’s test analyzes multiple genes rather than the APOE gene alone as in most other tests. Additionally, your GenoRisk Alzheimer’s Score is a “polygenic risk score” developed by cross-validating a number of statistical models that look at risk across various genes at one time instead of combining risk estimates for single genes. This means your results have a greater predictive accuracy than other tests.
Tests for beta amyloid protein (which causes the brain plaque associated with Alzheimer’s) and tau protein (causing brain neuron tangles in Alzheimer’s) are laboratory blood tests that require an order from your physician. These tests are designed to help diagnose Alzheimer’s and not provide genetic risk. GenoRisk Alzheimer’s is an at-home saliva test that looks at various single nucleotide polymorphims (SNPs) to establish a genetic risk for late-onset Alzheimer’s disease. The test is not intended to diagnose Alzheimer’s disease.
You can purchase tests directly on the ADx Health website homepage at www.adxhealth.com OR you can purchase a test on each product page on the website.
In addition to your results, your test purchase includes the option to schedule a fifteen-minute telehealth consultation with our health care partner to review your results and answer any questions you may have. You can schedule a consult by accessing your account in the Customer Portal.
